Singaporeans from all walks of life who are healthy and hepatitis A, B and C negative, have come out to strongly condemn Singapore General Hospital.

This after SGH revealed that there was a hepatitis C spread several months ago in one of their wards where kidney failure patients were residing and the news was made known in October after the General Election 2015.

One Singaporean, Yeo Ji, said SGH should have done more on their part: “I am disappointed that the news of this Hep C outbreak was made known after keeping it secret from the pubic for several months.”

“More should have been done by SGH to keep it further under wraps, preferably until the end of 2016.”

“It is disheartening to see SGH working on a time scale that is not here nor there, not immediate and not enough to look like a cover up.”

Other locals said this news bodes well for the state of medicine in Singapore and there is no need to work up a fuss about it.

Ai Zi Ping, another Singaporean, said: “At least it is only a Hepatitis C outbreak and not an AIDS-Ebola-small-pox-chlamydia outbreak.”

“And we only find out it has been happening since before GE2011.”

Lee Kuan Yew continues to keep reporters jumpy, on their toes at SGH

He has always toyed with reporters.

Reporters from the Singapore media and worldwide were kept occupied and on their toes throughout Wednesday, March 18, 2015, as Lee Kuan Yew continues to toy with them while resting in hospital.

Know to have little regard for the role of the press and news people in particular, Singapore’s first prime minister would issue take downs of articles and throw reporters out of his office in tears during his tenure as the leader of the city-state.

One reporter who was at SGH the whole day since early this morning, said: “It’s almost as if he knows we are here and he just wants to keep us waiting.”

“And when we least expect it, he catches us all by surprise.”

“He will always have the last word. Then and even now. He will.”
